debate. nixon was better in the second, gerald ford came back, ronald reagan came back after the disaster. and one assumes that president obama is doing the homework to make sure it happens. >> so johnathan, giving what larry describes here, does this mean the president has to come back and do just a solid debate performance or does he have to blow the socks off this one? >> just a solid performance. you know, he does have a lead, he lost, at most, two points. one to two points out of this last week, so he is going to be going in at this next debate, unless something else happens, which is not likely. you know, with a four-point lead, possibly. so if he can just deliver a solid performance, he will be fine. the danger for him is over compensating. so they talked about al gore, when he was sighing, and demeanor was not good, gore over-compensated again in the third debate, so that is something that people who have had a poor debate performance have to worry about. >> larry, i want to ask you about this very quickly, the next debate style will be town hall. we talked about how the president
's reagan?" you have got to be kidding. the reality is no, he's not ronald reagan. ronald reagan had core values. you saw those in the debates. you saw that in his life. i don't think barack obama has core values at all. he listens to whoever is talking to him and espouses the talking points. is barack obama ronald reagan? i know ronald reagan. he was my father and friend. barack is no ronald reagan thank god. megyn: we had scott on a couple weeks ago when he was one of the lone pollsters showing this a tight race. whenever that seems to happen, scott, they seem to take shots at you as somebody who is not reliable and does haven't good polls. even though -- even though now all these polls are showing what you are showing -- the republicans put out today a list of the polls that show this race tightening and it's across the pollsters showing this race tightening in all the states you mention. despite here, here is what chuck todd said about you. >> we spent a lot more money polling than scott rasmussen does. >> he was right the last couple elections. >> he got it right at the end. you guys

harry truman's administration through to ronald reagan's. collecting people imeel ya that offers a -- memorabilia that offers a three dimensional timeline of the presidential families. john f. kennedy jr.'s baby pen. even a burnt wooden post from 1814 when the british set fire to the white house which arrington found at work during the truman reconstruction. >> we found the table in the tar pen ter shop. >> reporter: he also helped with the kennedy renovations and collected items from the first lady herself, including a handwritten thank you note after the death of her son patrick. >> they're real people and they have real lives. a lot of this collection demonstrates that fact as well. >> i'm sure when he was collecting them, he was just -- never thought it would be of great, big value. but today we're reliving part of history. >> reporter: 1,000 things that arrington saved will be auctioned off today. starting bids ranging from $25 to $12,000. just like presidential life, the collection is bittersweet. wedding and inauguration announcements next to memories of an assassination a
, ronald reagan from california, the first george bush from texas and bill clinton from arkansas and the second bush from texas. so 2008 is in some ways a watershed election it's in being the four-year period of sunbelt dominance. there were issues that were critical in the politics that developed, they came out of the sunbelt and they tended to have a conservative back to them. they tended to be oriented around history of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and the defense of free enterprise politics and also in the sunbelt, and the south and southwest that we see the rise of the 1970s when we come in to talk about religious rights, the rise of evangelical and fundamentalist involve political process in a new political way. thurmond was at the forefront of all of those issues in his own politics on national defense. he was a staunch anti-communist and played an important role in anti-communist politics -- policies and was one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. here's a key figure in opposing labor unions and he did so alongside people like eric
's going to take advantage of it just like the hostage crisis in ronald reagan. i think that's what we are seeing now. they see an opportunity and they're trying to take advantage of it. where we should be having a legitimate, serious discussion about the direction of foreign policy in this country with serious ideas on the table yet there are no serious ideas on the table put up by mitt romney or paul ryan. >> stephanie cutter, deputy campaign manager from the obama campaign. busy night for you. thanks for spending some of it with us. we appreciate your time. >> thank you, rachel. >> we're counting down to the start of the vice presidential debate tonight. we have one distinct advantage here at msnbc. there's somebody among us right here at msnbc who has personally spent hours debating policy one-on-one with congressman paul ryan for real. that person is ezra klein, msnbc analyst. you should stay tuned to hear what ezra has learned from that very unique experience with one of the combatants in tonight's debate. stay with us. this is msnbc's live coverage of the vice presidential debat
is going to be, i think that he will have as much impact as ronald reagan, if not more. >> he'll do better than ronald reagan. >> i felt that for a long time, so... >> arthel: carl cameron is live in apopka, florida where the governor is set to take the stage, fund-raising news from both campaigns, carl? >> reporter: that's right, may be a while before we see governor romney, it is lightning country in florida and the campaign's arrival is delayed because of fear that it might be a threatening storm. a big crowd here and big money raised by mitt romney since the debate. his debate performance clearly caught the attention of both republicans, who were worried about the trajectory of his campaign and new voters and the campaign is reporting since the debate performance they've raked in more than $12 million, and, just today, the romney campaign undertaking a national teleconference, and phone banking exercise, made another 2 million contacts with what they hope to be new republican voters. it is a $12 million boost into the debate for mitt romney and stands in the face of staggering numbers
or became. um, the big issue, the big change began in 1980, of course, with the election of ronald reagan because ronald reagan brought with him to washington, um, a very underrated figure in recent american history, someone who i don't think gets his due as an important person, and that's edwin meese. because edwin meese at first as an adviser and then as attorney general said, look, there has been a liberal ayen da at the supreme court -- agenda at the supreme court, there needs to be a conservative agenda at the supreme court. what was that agenda? expand executive power, end racial preferences intended to assist african-americans, speed up execution, welcome religion into the public sphere and, above all, um, reverse roe v. wade and allow states once again to ban abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution, um, was the arrival in washington of a group of young and committed conservative lawyers who wanted to work in that, on behalf of that agenda. who were two of the best and brightest of that group? john roberts and samuel alito. 197 finish -- in 1985 in a memo plotting litigation
a better debater? >> there have been. lou: i am curious. >> ronald reagan. lou: he lost in the first one. >> two out of three from walter mondale. lou: maybe this is a new level. i just want to see how stingy they are with their praise. i think he blew the doors off. >> he had the night of his life. he did. and barack obama i thought had been decent but not great. he does things well. debating is not one of them. lou: does he get better? >> no. he keeps the head down who are the lowlifes challenging me? i think that is the arrogance coming out. he does not seem to enjoy a the political process more to be anointed. >> i would say i would concede the mitt romney that showed up last tuesday is the real one. i think there will be much more aggression in going forward. >> just a second. i want to go back to you this reading the social that. >> i apologize. [laughter] lou: you are running from the safety net? >> you are a clever political strategist. >> the obama argument has to be the romney tax cuts are real and will result in social programs being cut. lou: but today three days after the co
of times. >> it has never been done before. >> ronald reagan and jack kennedy -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> the vice president almost got dismissive when he tried to question the administration's business in afghanistan. >> at times joe biden used answers like marlakey over answers paul ryan gave. the romney/ryan ticket has been saying the united states has been pulling too many troops out of afghanistan leave doing small of force to defend itself in the eastern part of that country. now again here biden staying on the attack questioning ryan's understanding of the obama administration's policy to train afghan troops to take over the fight against the taliban. >> it's the most dangerous place in the world. >> that's why we don't want to send fewer -- >> that's why we should send americans in to do the job. you'd rather americans >> no. we are already sending americans to do the job but fewer of them. >> that's right. we're sending in more afghans to do the job, afghans to do the job. >> you know, this post debate spin has already gone into high gear tonight. republicans sending out doze
a few fireworks. >> it's been done a couple times. >> it has never. >> ronald reagan -- >> they delivered stark differences on domestic and foreign policy, including how to fix the economy. >> we are going in the wrong direction. the economy is barely limping along. >> that is surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are not willing to take responsibility for their own lives. they pay more effective tax and governor romney pays in his federal income-tax. >> mitt romneypaul ryan went after. after >> it took the president two weeks to acknowledge this was a terrorist attacks. >> you are jeopardized and medicare and changing it from a guaranteed benefit. >> it was heated. joe biden often laughed at all right in opposing arguments. >> joe biden understood denied he had to do what president obama failed to do last week's. >> both president obama and mitt romney watched closely. >> i thought joe biden was terrific tonight. i cannot be prouder. >> and running mates even shared a few laughs. >> i think the vice president knows that sometimes the words don't co
has done with jimmy carter -- jump away from it. i could not do that to ronald reagan now, next year, or any other time. i have too much trust in him, too much friendship for him, and i would feel very uncomfortable doing it. >> some republicans have criticized mr. mondale for saying he disagreed privately with jimmy carter's decision to impose a grain embargo. have you ever disagreed with any decision of the reagan administration and its inner circles? following that up, where in your judgment as loyalty and and principal begin? >> i owe my president my judgment, and i owe him loyalty. you cannot have the president of the united states out there looking over his shoulder wondering whether his vice- president is going to be supporting him. mrs. ferraro has quite a few differences with vice president mondale, and i understood it when she changed her position on tax credits and buses and to extend the grain embargo. he now says he was against it. if they win, and i hope they don't, but if they win, she will have to accommodate some views, but she will give him the same kind of loyalty
, when you are president, and this is why ronald reagan lost his first debate and why president george w. bush lost his first reelection debate, it has been four years. anybody has gotten in your grill. nobody tells you what you think. he is not used to it. but the president almost seriously -- physically was taken aback as romney went at it. the romney folks knew months ago that the debate prep would be the manhattan project of their campaign. that was where they would flip the switch if they had any possibility to. we saw a romney moved -- who his family had been encouraging the campaign to let him be more of himself, less scripted. we saw him all come out. he has to do with two more times. there are a number of countries that will tell you you only get one single attack. [laughter] to apologize to any of the ambassadors of our exalted -- insulted. charlotte -- charlie mentioned new jersey leno. it abused me hearing the obama's cams series of excuses. david letterman did the top 10 excuses. number 5 was mitt romney's here is mesmerizing. number 2 was asked osama bin laden how i did. nu
, i think there's a very strong majority of the american people who still believe that in ronald reagan's approach through peace through strength. that a strong america is what dissuaded them from attacking our interest. i think that president obama has exactly the opposite point of view. he believes that american strength is provocative. he's one of those people that jean kirkpatrick called a blame america first democrat and thinks if america is more retiring from the world, seeing that the rest of the world will treat us better. i think that's totally divorced from reality. >> kelly: you know, we're talking about issues as relates to benghazi, libya, but there's also iran and syria and also the entire middle east. looking ahead, what do you anticipate from a possible romney presidency with regard to dealing with those particular situations and even israel? >> well, i think the reverse of the president's view of the world is, it's not american strength that's provocative. it's american weakness that's provocative. i think a lot of our adversaries, internationally have looked at
they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt that for a long time. >> well, the wives of course in in race have high approval rating and favor ann romney and favor michelle obama, the wives are a huge asset. >> and president obama was off the campaign trail yesterday and finally celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president could give to anything that mitt romney did. and mitt romney seemed to energize after the debate. >> every year the median income has gone down, 4,300 a family ab with average family income around 50,000 bucks, that hurts. gasoline prices are up twice what they used to be. these are tough years for the middle class and for the poor in america. and if we calculate it, by the way, our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated when he came into office, be a different number. if the number of people shall the percentage of the american population in the work force were the same
't have done it? >> ronald reagan once said to support the march of freedom, but we can't determine the pace. the people in the country determine the pace of the march of freedom. it's humorous to suggest we could do this. >> can you make an assertion but no answer. that seemed to happen in that exchan exchange. >> if anyone doubts foreign policy and who advises candidates doesn't matter, they have to watch that video. this is the stakes at hand. there's two ways to look at this, i think. on the policy side governor romney's critiques are wrong. the president has done a remarkable job in terms of getting us out of iraq, setting us up for withdrawal out of afghanistan, killing osama bin laden, dismantling al qaeda. those are incredible accomplishments by my standard. if this was a republican president, i guarantee you republicans would crow about the incredible record. on the other side, i have no idea what the republicans are doing. if they think they will win a foreign he policy debate with the president, they're sorely mistaken. >> the key is the great contrast. many things are st
in '85. >> well, look aat athe job -- >> thank ronald reagan. >> absolutely. that's why romney's tax plan is want plan we need. lower rates broaden the base. it worked in '86, '87, '88. worked in '81 and '82. let's pause there for a second. >> thanks for the lead-in about reagan. >> romney has victory in the deba debate. every single poll shows he's picked up 5, 6, 7 points. some of these local battleground states picked up 8, 9 points. is does that change your stock market outlook from bear to bull? >> you get rid of obama care and 3.8% tax on investment income and get the tax on medical device makers, larry. >> i will bet you $20 right now. i'll make a romney $10,000 bet that obama care is not repealed. >> i'll bet you it will be repealed, but i'll buy a gift for your new daughter. >> thank you. >> if romney wins, which was not expected a week ago but is now more expected, if he wins what is the stock market impact? is it greater than earnings and the federal reserve? how do you assess a romney victory? >> what becomes important is the effect on capital gains and dividend taxes. we as i
debate since 1980 when ronald reagan ran against carter, and there was only one debate that year. >> a week before the election. >> that was the first time in the last 100 years republicans took out an incumbent. the one that this debate in terms of viewership tied with was in 1992 when clinton ran against bush. again, when an incumbent was being taken out. the reason so many people tuned in is because they know obama's taking the country in the wrong direction. they know they're underemployed. i don't care what number the obama administration gets flashed up on a tv screen, they know they're out of work, and they wanted to see if they're comfortable with the challenger. not only were they comfortable, they'll keep being comfortable. the reason romney is going to keep doing very well in the debates is because you never get to see him. the media tells us, you know, gives us snippets, paraphrase, in other words what he was trying to say is. let's see what he said. >> sean: if you want to look at polls -- we're still 29 days out. four weeks in a campaign we all agree is an eternity,
improvement in the unemployment numbers since ronald reagan ran for reelection in 1984. remember the morning in america thing, twon hat's e debate, but president obama won the post debate. at least it seemed that way for these last few days. then today back down to earth for democrats. we started getting in the first solid round of polling that reflected the results of the debate. and however, well the obama campaign did in managing the post debate spin and the post debate campaigning, the poll numbers clearly have now shifted in mitt romney's favor. in the new national poll out from the pew research center, governor romney is now tied with the president. romney trailed in this survey by 9 points before the debate. so that's a big shift toward mitt romney and away from barack obama in that poll. like wise in the new gallup poll, mr. romney polled even with the president after the debate erasing a 5-point advantage for the president. we have new polls from the swing states and near swing states. polls that include reaction to the first debate. in wisconsin today the president leads by just tw
was your first vote for president? >> ronald reagan. so, actually, i have a photograph of my grandfather, my father, my brother and myself all voting together at the same time, so -- >> it's a family tradition. so, you take this seriously. >> it was always a, you know, a big deal in our family. >> you voted for president obama last time around. what are the final considerations? >> issues around the federal government spending, how it affects our business. so, it is my life blood. and my future. >> dyer's business partner is -- she knows just how devastating these cuts could be to loudon. >> the dysfunctional process that brought us to the brink of this problem, which is going to be as serious a problem for our region as the fallout of the car industry was to detroit. it will be small businesses like ours that are going to be hit the most. it's projected 2 million jobs will be lost, half of which will be from small companies will be hit earliest and hardest. it's going to be very unfortunate. >> she sees this as a symptom of the dysfunction of congress. >> when you start asking questions
lost to ronald reagan. why do you, a guy who wasn't conscious at that time, why do you want to make a movie like this? >> it was a great story. for one thing, it's a thriller. it's actually comedy with the hollywood satirea complicated c.i.a. movie, a political movie. and it's all true. >> bill: so you want to make an entertainment though about a serious subject, rescuing americans from a dictatorship, iran. >> i did. the serious aspect was this was a tribute to the folks in our clan did he say tine services and foreign service who are risking their lives over there tragically seeing examples of that very recently. and folks who are -- what they give up to serve us and to serve our country. >> bill: this is a valentine from ben affleck to the intelligence community. the same people who water boarded, the same peter who rendition, what are your liberal friends going to say to you? >> i don't worry too much about what my lib rap friends say. today i made a movie that my friends who are democrats and republicans can both watch. it's not a political movie. >> bill: you didn't in the bac
's writing in addition to that when you're president and this is why ronald reagan losses first debate on why george w. bush lost his first re-election debate. if you are brought, it's arguably longer than that but anybody -- nobody really tells you what to think and he just -- that is way we saw the president physically taken aback as romney went at him. the romney folks, the new months ago that the debate prep would be the manhattan project of their campaign, that was where they were going to flip the switch if that had any possibility and we saw a romney whose family for a long time have been encouraging the campaign, to let him be more of himself, to be less scripted. he resisted that so we saw him all come out. the problem for him now, he has to do it two more times and there are number of countries who will tell you one problem is you only get one speak attack. [laughter] >> i will on to apologize to any of the ambassadors who are insulted by mike. [laughter] david letterman because one of the things hearing the obama camp's series of excuses and explanations for his performance, david
been done. >> ronald reagan. >> middle class got knock ond their heels. the great recession crushed them. they need help now. >> next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get wealthy people to pay their fair share. watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. >> greta: right now gets go to jamesville, wisconsin. his father and -- family and friends gathered to watch. so what did you think? the congressman's brother and sister-in-law, good evening to all of you. nice to see you. >> hi, greta. >> hi. >>. >> greta: tobin i've gotten word you just got off the phone and received first phone call and from your brother. what did he have to say? >> this is just like paul. he was interested in how our evening went. and he knew there are four 500 people here supporters with very, very loyal thoughts and he wanted to know our evening went and sure enough, a humble guy. he wanted feed back and i was very proud of him. very pleased with how he performed. >> greta: oakley did you get on the snon. >> no. i let tobin talk to his brother. >> greta: were you nervous oakley le
. >> they pitched chef against chef in a throwdown. >> reporter: we're at the ronald reagan building where all these people are waiting to create the delicious creations by the chefs competing in the food fight. it brings the restaurant community together to fight hunger for the d.c. central kitchen. it is a charity and an issue that is close to jose andres's heart. >> it is very simple. we all live in communities. we all want people to do well. sometimes it is people that for some reason, i think we need to put this stigma out. if we are able to give opportunity to people to learn a profession. to be meaningful to the community they live in, people will do well. and that's what this organization celebrates. we help people. we push people forward. people will do very well on their own. to see almost everybody, my friends, support them with the restaurants. support them with their presence. some of my friends, andrew zimmerman, padma, all the tv pros. it feels good. they don't do it because they're going to be like the heroes two hours and they're going to be in the spotlight. they do it becaus
and derailed laterr the entire term. and fast forward to 1980, jimmie carter against ronald reagan. and big story was the hostage release gave birth to night line and also birth to the american wondering would today be the day. october day right before the election came the release of the hostages. >> steve: surprise was, that republicans thought jimmie carter was sitting on the release of the hostages. he worked out a deal with the iranian to get them loose. he hadn't . 144 days and ronald reagan they were. >> gretchen: on the day of inauguration of ronald reagan. it feels like 2000, bush-gore. five-days came the revelation that george bush was arrested for an old drunk while driving. >> brian: dwi. driving while intoxicate the poems close we saw what happened. two monthses of not knowing who the president was. >> steve: two months later president bush squaring off with john kerry. and osama bin laden tape just a few days before election. john kerry told the associated press it changed the entire dynamic andagitated people over 9/11 . of course, john kerry lostt. >> brian: but kerry though
a distinguished lineage. ronald reagan and the 1986 democratic congress invented it. the gang of six endorsed it. in the upcoming talks on the fiscal cliff, we ought to scrap it. the reason is simple -- the old style of tax reform is obsolete in a 2012 world. it does not fit the times because there are two new conditions that did not exist in 1986 but are staring us in the face today. first, a much larger and much more dangerous deficit and second, a dramatic increase been income and inequality. old-style tax reform could make both conditions worse. but don't dismiss the old framework lightly. credit for the 1986 reform law belongs to democrats like bill bradley in the senate. just as much as to president reagan. as a member of the house back then, i not only voted for it, but i whipped the votes to make sure it passed. i was on the committee set up by dan rostenkowski to get it done. the approach made a good deal of sense at the time. then, as now, the code was littered with egregious loopholes that needed to be reformed. recall the so-called passive law schools that were in place back then. -
